1. You may need a later cummulative update, but I'd suggest asking subject matter experts here in dedicated forums.


2. It isn't recommeded to install exchange on a domain controller because of security issues plus the added complication. Better option is to install on a member server.

What is the meaning of this "Server-Gui-Mgmt-Infra" and how do you Install it as a Script in PowerShell?

Its likely the build is too old and incompatible.


but again I'd suggest asking experts here in dedicated exchange 2016 setup forum.

Hi Dave,


Please, what do you think about this error below:

Error: Installing product G:\exchangeserver.msi failed. Fatal error during installation. Error code is 1603.




The msi may be corrupt. From a windows server perspective, something here might also help.
